Meet Harlie Briggs
Based in the beautiful English countryside, Harlie is an artist who works on paintings and ceramics inspired by nature. Find out how she's escaping to serenity this summer, and her top picks from our Treasure Collection.
What are the summer moments you’re treasuring?
Moments that I will treasure this summer will be long warm evening dog walks as the sun starts to set, making tablescapes outdoors to enjoy an evening with friends or family with good food and wine, and listening to my boyfriend making music on his turntable as I paint in my art studio. These simple moments that I treasure are the ones that make me feel most alive!
How do you find serenity?
Finding a conducive environment that helps me feel creative and free is how I find serenity as an artist. This summer I will make the most of being able to paint outside in nature, which is almost like a form of mindfulness for me, connecting with my surroundings and finding a true sense of calm.
How does your stone symbolise your summer mindset?
The Olivine stone is my favourite of this collection, the stone of affirmation, freedom and joy. Joyful, slow and free is exactly how I envision my summer being. A summer to appreciate the beauty of England, appreciate the little moments like my morning coffee and spend spontaneous afternoons wild swimming or taking picnics to the forest.
